This event gives Bristolian a chance to know more about the religion and its civilization. Some Coolpix snapshots of the exhibition (too lazy to lug my D5000 now that I've got tons of books to haul :P)...
Contrary to popular belief, Arabs make up only 15% of Muslims. The most populous Islamic nation is actually Indonesia. 62% of the world's Muslims live in Asia compared to 20% in Arab countries. In fact there are more Muslims in Germany than in Lebanon, and more in China than in Syria (Yeah, I 'wikipeed' these :)).
